Jimbo

Rating: 5.0
Jimbo who has just turned eighty is as strong as an ox
One who is not in a hurry for the forever box
Bald on the top with gray hairs on his broad chest
On the coldest of weather all he wears is a pants, boots and a sleeveless vest
Divorced from Linda his ex wife for many years
Their marriage for her it ended in tears
When she discovered he was having an extra marital affair
Back when he had a head of light brown hair
The octogenarian great grandfather who barracks for the local football club
Drinks beer with his years younger mates at the local pub
For to refuse a drinking challenge he has never been known
At drinking with men half of his age he can hold his own
A bald headed octogenarian as strong as a bull
He walks home from the pub sober though of beer quite full.
